I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)
I don't like teenagers and children in books so much.
And this one reminded me again why that is.
It was not badly written and had an interesting angle on "elementals" - but then again, the whole "power of an elemental" has been done before and after (and well done) and so it doesn't feel as original as it might have to me some years ago.
I didn't like Emily. Not at all.
So I won't try out the series and leave it with this short novella.
